Part awards show, part press conference spectacle; The Game Awards was a sight to behold. We have a list of the winners below and collected all of the announcement trailers in one handy place for everyone. Congratulations to all the winners.
World War Z (Saber Interactive)
Based on the books and film of the same name, this new World War Z game looks intense. Zombies flood every crack and space of this world in an epic fight for survival. The game will be coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. No release date was announced.
Vacation Simulator (Owlchemy Labs)
In many ways a sequel to the popular VR game Job Simulator, Vacation Simulator puts players in a virtual simulation of a relaxing good time. As with their previous game, you’ll be a robot in the future experiencing what human vacations were like.
Accounting Plus (Crows Crows Crows)
The stranges of announcements, this new game comes from the mind of Justin Roiland (Creator of Rick and Morty). If the trailer doesn’t grab you…check your pulse. Best of all it comes out December 19th, 2017.
Shadows Die Twice (From Software)
The next game from the creators of Dark Souls III, From Software, is about as vague as vague can get. If it is a new PlayStation exclusive Bloodborne game entry then we could see more at PlayStation Experience this weekend.
In the Valley of Gods (Campo Santo)
The next game from the creators of the award-winning Firewatch. In The Valley of Gods is an exploration-heavy story of friendship and discovery in Egypt. We’ll have to wait till 2019 to play it though.
Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild – The Champions Ballad
Link gets a motorcycle. Why didn’t they call it Linkcitebike instead? For all the Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild fans’ this new content is available starting tonight.
Soul Caliber VI (Namco Bandai)
Not the first name in fighting games but one with a cult following. Namco is bringing back the fun of sword fighting. The game releases in 2018 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Fade To Silence (THQ nordic)
HP Lovecraft meets The Road. This trailer is simply chilling to watch and lucky for us the game goes into early access on STEAM PC this month.
Bayonetta 1&2 (Sega/Nintendo)
Nintendo’s had a resurgence with the hybrid home/portable console Switch. It’s not holding back on reminding people of the games you’ve loved on previous hardware iterations. All the breakneck action of Bayonetta 1&2 is coming to the Switch in a special bundle on February 16, 2018.
Bayonetta 3 (Platinum Games)
Joining the ranks of the new Metroid is a brand new entry in the Bayonetta series. The brief teaser announces Bayonetta 3 as officially being in development. No other information was given.
Death Stranding (Kojima Productions)
No Hideo Kojima appearance would be complete without another look at the utter bonkers batsh** that is his upcoming game, Death Stranding. I’m sure before long we’ll see Mads Mikkelson, Norman Reedus, and Kojima pimping this game. But it was good to see Kojima and Reedus together after being torn apart by Konami.
Witchfire (The Astronauts)
A debut game for a new studio formed from pieces of some major gaming powerhouses. The Astronauts was formed by three developers in 2012. Prior to founding the new studio, the three founded People Can Fly, best known for games like Painkiller, Bulletstorm and Gears of War: Judgment. Witchfire currently has no release date or a confirmation of which platforms the game will be available on.
